Something Playful About Going Asymmetrical
Sharing a picture of an outfit that I wore to my cousin's wedding reception in January this year. Apart from the deep red, the workmanship and sheer brilliance of JJ Valaya; one of the main reasons I opted for this outfit was the element of drama from the Asymmetrical anarkali.
In simplest terms, "asymmetrical" basically means that it is not the same on both sides. In fashion, it is often used to describe a garment where the hemlines are shorter on one side and longer on the other.
I feel an asymmetrical cut gives the garment a playful and feminine edge. From runways to street-style, tunics, shirts, skirts and dresses are all being presented in this unbalanced avatar.
As you can see from the picture above, the asymmetrical trend is not restricted to western attire. Floor length voluminous anarkalis are all the rage, so, if you have already invested in a few, give the slimmer asymmetrical version a try.
With an asymmetrical hemlines your shoes are about get a lot more attention than usual. Opted for a golden pair of Tributes from Saint Laurent and completed the look with a gold Prada bag. Left my hair natural but pinned off the face.
Shopping Tip: It is better to have an outfit such as this made-to-order so that the train length can be kept as per your requirement. Wear the heels you plan on wearing with the piece, giving your measurements, so that the hemline in the back falls just right. Nothing cool about wearing it short from the back or having it drag on the floor.
